PRIME TIME Interview and Interrogations
April 7 @ 8:00 am - April 9 @ 5:00 pm| $0.00
Length of Seminar: 3 Days
Instructor: Brian Harris (Sergeant, Houston Police Department Homicide Division)
This session will provide an in-depth look at the P.R.I.M.E. T.I.M.E. interview techniques utilized when questioning witnesses and suspects. This training includes room set-up, rapport building, learning theme development, body language, interview plotting and a host of other tools. Attendees will participate in an interactive training with current confession clips and class exercises that will provide useful tools and build confidence needed in the interview room. The Houston Police Department has instituted this school as mandatory training for all new detectives. The instructor has been featured on 20/20 and have traveled the United States training officers in this approach.
The investigator or detective who is not proficient in this skill is as handicapped as a surgeon who cannot use a scalpel.
The professional interrogator requires a substantial amount of knowledge to develop his\her art, an appreciation of the human condition, and the society in which we live, an in-depth awareness of the psychology of human behavior, a mastery of criminal investigation procedures and principles; an understanding of the criminal statutes, and expertise in the operation of the jurisprudence system. PRIME TIME will have you ready.
At the conclusion of the course, the officer/investigator will understand the importance of P.R.I.M.E. T.I.M.E:
- Prepare, Psychology, Plot, Plan
- Rapport and Report
- Interview or Interrogate
- Miranda, Monologue and Manage
- Managing the musts
The 36th Judicial District Attorney’s Office and the San Patricio County Attorney’s Office, along with the Ingleside and Aransas Pass Police Departments have paid for this course. There will be no tuition expenses for per-registered attendees. This training is far too valuable to let go to waste, so send as many of your staff as needed.
